Our History

In 1935, we were formed as the Detroit Newspaper Industrial Credit Union, to serve people who worked in the newspaper industry. In the 1970s, we changed our name to be more inclusive of industries such as radio, television, printing, and publishing. We chose Communicating Arts Credit Union, the name most associate with our credit union.

As other financial institutions fled Detroit, we expanded our scope to help fill the financial services gap. Though we have never forgotten our roots, we have grown to include all people in our mission. Whether you live in the city or the suburbs—we know you carry the Spirit of Detroit with you—just as we do.

We changed our name from Communicating Arts Credit Union to One Detroit Credit Union, but we are still the same organization that is committed to people over profit. Our new logo represents our unity as a community of Detroiters. It encompasses both the ‘1’ and the ‘D’ on a solid line marking our unified path to financial empowerment.

We are One Detroit.

Our Mission

We help people in our community who have been overlooked by the mainstream banking system by providing them with credible, fair and reasonably priced financial products and services.
